From the French of Lama nine
In vain in vain, day follows day.
They glide without a mark away
But nought shall from my soul remove
Thy memory, latest dream of love.
I see my rapid years gone by
Behind me heaped as mountains high
E'en as the Oak in Autumn time,
Sees fall the foilage of his-$rime.
The frost of age is on my brow.
My chilly blood will scarcely flow
Like this dark wave o'er which has passed
The cold breath of the wintry blast.
But thy serene and ybuthful face, '
Which sorrow only comes to grace, 1
'Still lovely in my heart I bold,
For, like the soul, it ne'er grows old.
No thou hast never left mine eye,
My lonely path thou still art nigh
And when I ceased to see thee here,
I saw thee in a brighter sphere.
There I behold thee such agstin
As on that last dread day of pain,
When to thy blest abode away
Thou fleddest with the morning's ray.
Thy pure and touching loveliness
. In Heaven's sweet air shines none the less,
And eyes where life had ceased to be
Are bright with immortality.
It is thy hand which dries my tears,
And calms my spirit's anxious fears ;
Thy voice doth whisper in mine ear
" Pray thou in secret, God will hear."
And e'en in sleep thou dost attend,
The guardian angel of thy friend ;
' For all my dreams ar filled with thee,
Pure as the thoughts of Seraphs be.

Directly and indirectly, alcohol is produc

one considers how many children are born of
intemperate parents, who without being idiots,
are deficient in bodily and mental energy, and
are predisposed by their very organization to
have cravings for alcoholic stimulants, it will
be seen what an immense burden the drinkers

What a respectable business is that which
makes men murder their wives! In our last
paper was an account of this description, for
which the husband was sentenced to the gal

took place, also in New York, committed by a
man named Slaight whose wife had been for
ced to leave him in consequence of his drunk,
enness and mal-treatment, and who, failing to
induce herto return, killed her with a pistol,
while excited by rum. On coming to his sober
senses and finding himself in prison, he was
